How I Think It Will Play Out

OK, so Governor Corzine suggests that we implement self-serve gas in NJ, because it could save "up to 6 cents a gallon". At least, that's the figure I heard on NJ101.5's news this morning. And sure it will, for the first couple of months. Then, though, I'm willing to bet serious cash that gas station owners will creep the price up by a few cents at a time, until all of the savings that self-service renders are rendered solely unto gas station owners. Look at other states, self-serve gas is *more* expensive, even if that state has ports to bring in oil, or a relatively low gas tax.

Also, I *hate* having to get out of the car in the cold or the rain. That could be clouding my judgement, here.
